    I found it, thanks for looking. http://www.passatworld.com/forums/b5-garage/321488-$35-3-hour-no-heat-fix-guaranteed.html There was a link in some thread about how to replace a passat heater core by placing a different heater core on the air inlet under the rain tray. I can't locate it. If...

    Hello deer Passat lovers. A week ago I got my first car (Passat 2003 GLX). I love it so much I cannot describe it. - Makes me (ALMOST) forget about girls. :lol: My mother gifted it to me after graduating with A's and B's for 4 years straight. (hard work pays off) I am on my family insurance...

    One of the things that bugs me about the pedal placement in my 99 manual transmission Passat is they aren't positioned to allow heel-toe shifting. The gas pedal is set too far to the right and too far forward. This is set up for your average driver and the spacing keeps drivers from...

    I've seen this on many forums and it's always been a winner. Post up what you did to your car today. Add a picture or two that show what your did. With that, I give you my addition, I polished my headlights.

    As I mentioned before. The B6 has drive-by-wire acceleration. On the cars with automatic tyrannies the computer senses when you are braking and returns the engine to curb idle. Heal and toeing is definitely a no-no. Likewise is braking with your left foot as there is a tendency to lean the foot...

    This is my new modification on break lights. I'm calling it "snowballs" :lol: Left side is an original breaklight and right is modified. I used 3 short wires and soldering iron only for that.
  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have an idea and feedback is welcome. About 50k miles ago, I broke the plastic pipe that went from the pump to the exhaust and replaced it with a length of 3/4" heater hose. Things were working fine until the jet engine noise started. Lived with that for a while and finally the SAIP went out...

    So after discussing with my mechanic and showing him pictures of my wide body project, which im sure most of you have seen, he raised some well interesting/disturbing issues. My plan is to run very wide wheels and tires, i have 19x8's with a 35 offset, i plan on getting them widened, but with...

    I have searched the threads and it appears that these mounts are much stiffer than OEM but do not cause much increase in vibration and do not require any modification. Is this true? Rick 2003 1.8T GL 5 spd

    Today after a long drawn out debate as to whether I was going to put my zender replica spoiler on, I finally decide to do install it. The zender has been sitting in my garage for months. I finally was able to get my rear deck lid, and right quarter panel painted, as the paint was completely...

    Last weekend I added a rear parking sensor to help me out in my old age. (2002 Passat 5.5 2.00 SE) In order to do this I had to remove the two rear light clusters in order to remove the bumper. I've reinstalled the light clusters with new seals, and have carefully monitored for any leaks...

    The lips can be bent beyond recognition but the barrels must be crack free and with the least amount of bends in it. Since the inner barrels are going to be refinished best to have the stock bbs bolts rechromed. all 30 bolts are torqued to 15lbs maximum or you will strip the thread/snap the...

    Hi - Question for all of you B5 fanatics. This AM, I backed out of our driveway and through some frozen snow/ice/crud, and managed to pull off the lower half of my bumper. IE, the part that the fog light inserts go in. The painted part seems fine. The gray lower part is the heavily modified...
